Hi All!
Hope you survived the #Snowpocalypse and scramble for bread and milk. March is an exciting month, and International Women's Day is coming up.
Was at 404 London last month, and had so much fun. It was great to have a chat about the Irish Tech Community on stage with Robert Campion (Overstock) and John Forde (Hubspot) compered by the awesome Jess Kelly (Newstalk). 
Sneak peek... Anyone interested in making games, we will be officially announcing details soon about three workshops which will be held in Galway in April. We will be focusing on board-game design, narrative storytelling and coding. See below for more information.
There's lots of diversity in tech events this month, check them out in our Diversity Events listings below.
